IFI Education Programme: A Colony
Secondary School Event: Senior Cycle French
In this affecting tale, Mylia, is a 12 year old girl in Centre-du-Québec, struggling to fit in at a new school. Finding solace in the outdoors with fellow outsider Jimmy, a boy of Abenaki descent, the two outsiders learn to navigate the precariousness of their environments, confronting concepts of citizenship and belonging.
Beautifully shot and tenderly observed, Une colonie is remarkable coming of age tale that explores themes of loneliness and connection through its moving story.
